RESTAURANT EMPLOYEE RELIEF FUND

APPLICATION UPDATE: We are deeply humbled by and grateful for the opportunity to provide support to restaurant employees.

Almost immediately after opening the application process, extremely high user volume overwhelmed the application platform. Over the weekend, we will take down the application so that we can upgrade our system and expand capacity.

We remain completely committed to getting as many restaurant workers as possible the funds they need.

Please check back with us on Monday, April 6, for an update. Thank you for your patience.
